But because of your stubborn and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself of the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. – Rom 2:5
Paul is speaking to both Jew and Gentile who chooses to live the hypocritical life. To judge others for their sins and yet lives in the very same sin themselves. Chooses to say that sin is evil, but then goes out and supports the acceptance of sin in our society.
We cannot be of two minds, we are either for God or against Him and everything in our lives must either support God’s will and plan or none of it does. If we wish to face wrath and judgement on the final days and if we intend on spending our eternity in hell, then yes, we can continue our ways.
However, the Gospel account is the antecedent of this very verse, if we would just repent and become humble, turning from our sin and asking forgiveness God would relent His wrath from upon us. If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chron 7:14)
Its never too late to turn your hearts from the wickedness of the flesh. Repentance is a daily activity; I must repent from my flesh and choose to serve the Lord today. I must continue to pray for humility and seek out the Lord’s face and not my own desires. He will bless all who do because, “God does not show favoritism.” (Acts 2:11)
Start today, pick anything in your life that is not of the Lord and repent of it; get rid of the wickedness one step at a time. Choose to love the Lord more than yourself today and see the blessing that He will heap upon you with His love and joy.
God Bless You All,
